It may be just coincidental but it may need a recharge; most cooling systems eventually leak and if it has been standing in a hot area, this may have accelerated the loss.
Get an estimate before having anyone come since the cost may be higher than the freezer's current value.

I have deep freezer chest that does not freeze but when you plug it in you can hear it click on but will not get cold at all has been unplugged for a few years but stored in a dry building


If it doesn't get cold at all, then your compressor is not running. Which could be the start relay or start capacitor or even the compressor. The relay and capacitor are not that expensive and pretty easy to replace, but if it is the compressor then you might not want to put that much money into an older unit.

Is it a self defrosting? Or not? And how did you defrost it?If you scraped and chipped the ice away, you may have poked a hole in the evaporator and the refrigerant (freon) leaked out.

Plugged in the freezer full of meat, and it did not freeze...


My advice to you is to transfer the meat to another place (preferably somewhere cold, for both the sake of the meat, and your freezer), let the compressor cool down, and then try starting the freezer. If it does start (it should), let it run until it has pulled the box down to 0 F. Then add the meat back in. Note at the beginning I told you to store the meat somewhere cold. It can be quite an overloading situation for the freezer, not only to have to pull itself down to such a cold temp, but when you add a bunch of "warm" meat to the appliance it is just to much of a load for it to handle. Hope this helps

Kenmore upright frost free freezer compressor will not come on...


mlee62599,


You have a freon leak and the coolant leaked out. Perhaps when you mode it down the stairs one of the coils with the freon in it ruptured a tiny hole.

You need an authorized and certified tech for freon.

GIBSON DEEP FREEZE IS RUNNING BUT EVERYTHING IS THAWING OUT


Might try unplugging for a few hours and then plug it back in. There is a possibility that it slugged the compressor and there is a restriction in the line. Sometimes when the compressor fails to stop running in cold air the liquid gets back to the compressor. It can cause a bit of gunk to be picked up out of the oil and carried to the expansion line and plug up the line. Maybe turning it off will let the plug fall free and not replug the line. Worth a try anyway.....
